Publisher's Summary

A diary and a cache of letters from 120 years ago introduce Caroline and James to the sad story of their forebears who gave up the people they loved out of Victorian ideas of honor and what was fitting. Are they doomed to do the same? In 1893, Captain Rodney McKenna chaperoned the young Melissa Blaze to India - he to rejoin his regiment and she to find a husband. Melissa falls in love with the Captain and the Captain with her, but his sense of honor forbids him acting on his feelings and the journey ends in disaster, with the Captain stripped of his rank and Melissa banned from returning to England. Now, in 2013, their great great grandchildren, Caroline and James, find themselves in the same dilemma. Caroline has led what can only be called a dissolute life. Can she overcome her past to accept the love that is offered her?

WARNING: Contains explicit sexual activity.

A good story even without the steamy scenes.

What made the experience of listening to The Binding the most enjoyable?

The story in this book is of a higher caliber than many others in this category (which rely more heavily on raw sex or sex on the edge). This one has it all.

Who was your favorite character and why?

There were actually 5 characters that would try unsuccessfully to choose from. I liked them all, equally, if that is possible; because, they seemed so real in their, attitudes, flaws, and good character traits.

Which scene was your favorite?

Too many to choose from.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes
